Remembrance Day is on 11/11/2011, so it seems apt that a military theme runs throughout this November issue.
It honours those who have served our country in times of need. Lest we forget. A few that you will read about are:
- the Fraser sons of the Boer War
- James Norton Haffenden, RAAF WWII
- Lance Sergeant Ian Gordon MacInnes
- Corporal Patrick Charles Graney
- the Hill End School Honour Roll
- Edward Drain
- Frawley Men at War
You’ll also read about Stephen Simpson, the doctor of Woogaroo, and David and Hellen Miller from Ayrshire, Scotland amongst others.
The Computers and Genealogy section has an interview with the creator of the brand new Genies Down Under podcasts, and you can learn about the nation-wide survey into past adoption experiences in this month’s Genealogy News.
